it's all about tom...
no, not cruise. the tom i'm talkin' about is the first truly gorgeous (by my mommy's way of thinking) tom... tom selleck. this post, by the way, is actually for mommy's sister... the veryveryvery smart dr. terri, with whom mommy used to have a shared passion for all things tom selleck. now, before i go on, let me quickly say to any and all of you who aren't mommy's sister, and might be, therefore, curious, that mommy & her sister are pretty much over tom these days, what with his allegiance to the NRA and all. as a matter of fact, mommy is mad-crazy in love with daddy and ditto for the vvvs dr. terri, who is devoted to her honey, the vvvs & vvvcute dr. billy. nah, this tom thing dates back to a time they used to lust after him when he appeared in a recurring role on the young and the restless -- long before he became famous as the dreamy even more lust-worthy detective, magnum. (and wa-a-ay before he melted more hearts as richard on friends...) that said, you're all invited to check out the following excerpt from cnn.com:
LOS ANGELES, California (Hollywood Reporter) -- Rawson Marshall Thurber ("Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story") has signed on to write and direct the big-screen adaptation of "Magnum P.I.," the 1980s series that made Tom Selleck a star.
"Magnum P.I.," which ran on CBS from 1980 to 1988, followed the adventures of Thomas Magnum, a Navy intelligence officer-turned-private investigator hired by wealthy author and playboy Robin Masters to oversee security on the latter's massive Hawaii estate.
the article goes on to describe the car magnum drove on the show as well as the friends that helped him solve crimes and blahblahblahblabbity blah.... the article also points out that...
Thurber is not making a spoof but rather something akin to the tone of the show, which mixed humor and danger.
while it's good to know the movie won't spoof all things magnum, it's really beside the point. what is the point? the point is this: if they're making a movie about magnum, who's gonna play magnum? now, i have it on good authority that mommy can't imagine anyone but tom playing that role... and she's pretty sure her sister will agree. there was, after all, one main reason they watched magnum p.i. in the first place... we're talking about "happy eyes" here, kids... so, where the movie is concerned, i guess the producers will ultimately have to decide just whose eyes they want to make happy this time around. all i know, is that mommy and the vvvs dr. terri will be hard-pressed to envision anyone but tom in the title role and will, therefore, be keeping their fingers crossed, and their eyes primed and ready for more happiness.
i actually have more silly tom-related stories to tell--mommy and her sister had one "close encounter" that might make for good reading in the future, so... stay tuned! (get it? tuned? like the last time i said "tuned" when i was talking about something involving television? remember? ah... forget it. but, stay tuned...)
